Because you can’t watch *everything*.
#130 - Them, Wellington Paranormal, and Intruder
Assuming you're able to rouse yourself from a chocolate-induced coma this Easter Monday, we have a similarly sugar-fuelled episode of the podcast for you as we brace ourselves for supernatural horror/social realism thriller Them on Amazon, What We Do In The Shadows spinoff Wellington Paranormal on Sky, and burglary-gone-wrong thriller Intruder on Channel 5. There's also some serious discussion about *that* Unforgotten finale and while spoilers for the show are again quite clearly signposted, you can avoid the entire discussion by skipping everything between 11:56 and 19:38. Terri, James and Boyd's screaming row about appropriate spoiler etiquette on twitter, however, must be listened to in full.
#129 - The Irregulars, Keeping Faith, and The Syndicate
On this week's show we take a trip back to Victorian London for Netflix's YA-themed Sherlock show The Irregulars, plus a jaunt to Wales for the final series of the BBC's Keeping Faith. And then, for reasons, we also review the *fourth* series of Lottery-winner drama The Syndicate, in which a group of dog groomers strike it rich. Plus we get very excited about the penultimate episode of Unforgotten (spoilers are clearly signposted but occur between 5:20 and 11:21), and explore some of the great shows that began their lives on the big screen.
#128 - The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, and Hausen
If your week could be measurably improved by the sound of Terri quacking uncontrollably then you’re in luck, because there’s an abundance of duck sound effects to accompany this week’s reviews section as we tackle The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers on Disney+. When not replicating a mallard’s mating calls, we also share our reactions to nihilistic German horror series Hausen on Sky, and immerse ourselves in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. Meanwhile, we take a look at instances where great shows go bad and the news section is hijacked by a lively debate about Jed Mercurio’s use of the C-bomb (actual C-bombs abound - you have been warned) and the depiction of violence on telly.
#127 - The Flight Attendant, Calls, and Line Of Duty
AC-12 is back in the house this week as we catch up with all the latest Ted Hastings developments in Line Of Duty series 6 on BBC1 (NOTE: contains no spoilers or plot discussion for this or previous seasons), plus we pick up the phone for Apple’s batty audio-only drama Calls, and finally get to go on a holiday (albeit a vicarious one) as we join Kaley Cuoco for jet-setting murder mystery The Flight Attendant on Sky. All that and Terri disappears down an Unforgotten rabbit hole and we take a trip down memory lane to the shows we loved back when we were knee-high to a grasshopper.
126 - Grace, neXt, and Love In The Time Of Corona
James and Terri made a Faustian pact in advance of this week’s show, which leads to a rather unexpected instalment of What We’ve Been Watching. Then we then try to work out what on Earth is going on with BBC Three, how the Golden Globes ceremony was one of the best things on telly last week, and which teen shows float each member of the team’s respective boats. Plus we find ourselves looking for love in lockdown via Star’s Love In The Time Of Corona, on the trail of a rogue AI in Star’s curiously capitalised neXt, and on the trail of a missing person in ITV’s surname-based cop thriller, Grace.
#125 - Your Honor, Dollface, and The Walking Dead
On this week's show we find ourselves in the familiar scenario of watching a law abiding Bryan Cranston abandon his regular life for one of crime in Sky’s Your Honor. Plus James makes a valiant stand against Terri and Boyd when the team review Star's new comedy, Dollface, and Terri is forced to watch the new bonus episodes of The Walking Dead, despite only ever having seen one episode in her life.
Not only that but the team also reveal their favourite telly picks from the dark days before the current era of Peak TV, and James insists on inflicting his latest rewatch obsession on everyone, whether they want him to or not.
Hilarious, hysterical and helpful
The best entertainment podcast there is. Laugh out loud funny AND with insightful reviews on current tv shows.
Not all Swedes etc.
I heard a fellow Swede left a scathing and entirely unwarranted review and I wanted to correct that. Horrible jokes indeed, but great people and do NOT dial back on the swearing.
Horrible horrible horrible podcast
Dont spend ur time on this. All they do is laugh at their own jokes. Well I dont know why all brits think they are the next Ricky Gervais. These people are scum of the earth compared to him, more like Jimmy Saville level than Ricky. They never ever ever ever ever come to any point in any recap or review.
Worst time ever spend on a podcast. And their taste in tv series is so hipster that Im about to throw up in my mouth.
THESE PEOPLE ARE WORSE THAN BREXIT. Gtfo
